Christie & Co sell former convenience store for change of use
Specialist business property adviser, Christie & Co has completed on the sale of the Premier Convenience Store and Post Office situated in Mynydd Isa, a picturesque village in Flintshire, North Wales.
Myndd Isa lies between the county towns of Mold and Buckley. Situated within the busy Mercia Drive parade of shops, the property is assured plenty of passing footfall and traffic from the surrounding residential areas.
The Premier Convenience Store and Post Office has been run up until now by Nigel Page, who has sold the business following 14 years of ownership in order to pursue a well-deserved retirement. He comments, “Though I have really loved running the shop, I felt that the time was right to find a new owner for the property and enjoy my retirement. I wish the new owner, Julie, and her team the very best of luck and hope that she enjoys operating her business from the property as much as I have.”
Formerly trading as Mercia Drive Stores, the property has been sold for change of use to Pen Y Lon, a local provider of physiotherapy and occupational health services. Commenting on their plans for the business, new owner, Julie Wilkinson comments, “The former Premier Convenience Store and Post Office is ideally located for our business. Following a comprehensive re-fit of the property we plan to reopen as a brand-new physiotherapy and occupational health clinic serving the local community here in Mynydd Isa and Mold.”
Ashley Cobban, Retail Business Agent at Christie & Co, who conducted the sale, comments, “We’re delighted to have helped Julie find a new home for her clinic. With the retail landscape around Mold changing substantially in recent years, it makes sense that what would have traditionally been a town centre retail unit is now becoming home to a service-led business. We are increasingly seeing the need for urban centres to diversify and offer visitors a wide range of services and experiences.”
The Premier Convenience Store and Post Office was sold on a freehold basis, off an asking price of £110,000.
